So yesterday, I was watching the Tactacam footage from my hunt Saturday morning and something caught my attention. I was of course focused in on the bird that I killed and your can hear a gobble after I call to him. What I noticed was that his neck or head never moved. After watching the footage from the beginning closely, I came to the realization that I had two birds come in to me. The strutter which is the first bird I saw and then the bird I eventually killed. I got crossed up when the strutter went behind some trees and the bird I killed popped out on the other side. After watching, I can clearly see the strutter never breaking strut the whole time I am focused in on the bird I killed. Long story short is that the strutter was not killed. What are your thoughts on him still being in that same area?

Really good chance he will be around. I've killed a bird from a pair/group multiple times and went right back to the same area the next day and got on them again.
